My daughter is a student at MMS. This school deeply cares about their students. They are educating them for life! They know each girl is an individual with her own unique talents and abilities. They want them to flourish and be successful in life! We are very thankful for this opportunity for my daughter!

This school is so special. In educating girls for life, they've made a difference in so many girls formative years. The school sets high expectations for their girls and gives them the support they need to succeed. Marian is focused on academic and social preparation for high school. Marian has 215 graduates and 80% of graduates have attended college.

Marian Middle School is amazing! Everyone- administration, teachers, staff, volunteers are committed to the girls. I have been privileged to work with them on a professional level. Spent a week with the 5th grade girls, teacher, and volunteers. All of them were powerful ambassadors for the school. Marian Middle School- you have so much to be proud of! Thank-you for the work you are doing and the example you are setting!

Marian Middle School has opened it's doors to many Hispanic girls from poor families who are not able to pay for a quality education. Most Hispanic children have to attend public schools where they are considered lesser beings, are bullied for their lack of English, and resort to dropping out early or joining gangs. This school encourages friendly communication, equality, and justice, while teaching the necessary subjects (math, reading, science, etc.). While many public schools are failing our children, Marian Middle School is an example to follow.

Marian Middle School is a joyful, exciting place. I love going there. The girls are polite and serious but also fun loving. The teachers are remarkable, always upbeat and helpful. The halls are neat and the atmosphere is one of appreciation.

I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer at Marian last year. I was amazed at the girls' enthusiasm for learning and for the disciplined yet friendly and relaxed atmosphere in the school. The staff extends their hospitality with a sincerity that makes you feel special. But as I learned, it is the girls and this school that are special and unique! Without a doubt, Marian provides a unique option for girls to participate in a top-notch school.

Marian middle school is helping to break the cycle of poverty for the girls who attend school there. They provide a firm foundation of learning for the students, not just for school, but for life. When girls graduate from Marian in 8th grade they are well-prepared for high school, college, and beyond. The faculty and staff are excellent and their dedication to their students is unwavering. I hope one day that every girl gets a chance to be a Marian Girl!
